Are you spending hours and days searching and searching and searching
for a great vacation rental to base your Naples trip?
Is it stressing you out to the point that you’ll need TWO vacations just to get over it?
Sounds like you’re tangled in the World Wide Web.
So why is this process so hard??
Some of our staff weigh in.
“The Vacation Rental industry is exploding and the internet is full of 3rd party listing sites. The major players are sites like HomeAway, VRBO, VacationRentals, FlipKey, TripAdvisor, AirBnB, Booking.com, and so much more. When an individual consumer searches for a vacation rental in Naples, they typically start with a Google search. The traveler might type in something like Vacation Rentals in Naples, Florida. In the internet search world, ‘Bigger is unfortunately better,’ and so it ranks those sites who have the most content on Vacation Rentals in Naples, Florida. If HomeAway has 5,000 listings for vacation rental properties in Naples, Florida, it will rank it much higher than, say, the local vacation rental manager who might be managing 20 or 50 or even 100 properties.
“The next problem is that those listing sites are really the ‘Yellow Pages’ of advertising vacation rentals. Their listings are full of individual homeowners who innocently buy an ad on their site hoping to rent their home to vacationers. Those homeowners are real people and oftentimes have full-time jobs, families to care for and treat renting their place as a part-time business. Let’s face it, it takes a lot of hard work and effort to respond to all the inquiries, and it takes a lot of hard work to figure out how to navigate and work the back end.”
“Other websites are not updated often, so the consumer is not aware of what is available. All of the add-ons – pool heat, pets – It’s hard to figure out your options are when a listing website doesn’t have those options listed on their booking page. And it’s frustrating when you can’t get a question answered. 50% of the people I talk to rented from us because we were the only company that responded to their request!”
“There are so many sites online, you get lost. There’s no human to talk to. Not everyone answers emails and phone calls. We have a full staff and API (an Application Programming Interface) automated messaging and a quote system.Lots of owners don’t have their calendars updated. Because we are a local, experienced rental and management company, the software that we have works with third party sites and updates calendars daily, even hourly. Lots of homes listed are just people doing this by themselves and, therefore, are not properly managed.”
We Make it EASY
Homeowners are notorious for not updating their calendars, rates, failing to respond, etc. In short, renting their home is a lot more complicated than just placing an ad on VRBO. It is very common for the vacation rental guest to send inquiries on 20 or 30 properties and to only hear back from 2 or 3 people. It might also take several days to hear back from just a few of the properties they inquired about. At Naples Florida Vacation Homes, we take the Vacation Rental market very seriously. In fact, it is our full-time business. We welcome any length of stay, whether that be for 3 nights, 13 nights, or 23 nights. We also offer flexible check-in and check-out dates. Because we price our vacation rentals by the night, you are not bound to a weekly rental with a strict Saturday-to-Saturday stay. We also make shopping for and booking a vacation rental online super easy. We best serve BUSY people – people who are pretty certain about specific travel dates.
